Shout-out for SYLPHINPROGRESS

Thanks for writing, Laurie.
I've had knee surgery and mostly just haven't been in the mood to spark, reading books and watching movies instead. And I got sort of bummed out because of others.
It's silly of me but I really set out this summer to connect to other Sparkers because I've seen so many get discouraged and drop out, especially banders or people who had lots of weight to lose. So as I read the blogs and huddle posts, if I saw someone who was really down, I would go back to that person's page and try to encourage them and give a goodie.
Do you know that people just don't say thanks anymore, much less respond in kind? Maybe I've been wrong but I thought we were a support community, not entertainers putting on a one-person show.
Maybe I should make this my next blog, huh? Anyway, I'm okay and thanks so much for checking on me.
At the moment, I'm propped up with a pressure dressing on my knee because I had the bright idea of removing the single stitch that was left. Sure enough, I popped open one of the wounds last night when I also decided a tub soak would be nice. So I'm working on lesson plans and playing on the computer. I'll try to do better.
